Hammy 8.5lbs. – 12″ tall
Hammy is a stunning toy poodle who was imported from Europe. He was bred by one of the most impressive Toy Poodle breeders! I have a few dogs from this breeder, and I have been nothing but impressed with the quality of her dogs and the quality of pups that they produce!
Hammy’s lines are full of Champions on both his mother and father’s side. His father is JCH Russia, CH Russia, RKF, Eurasia, Champion of the breed “Golden Collar” 2016, 2017,2019. Pictures of his father are attached in the slider so you can get a sense of the lines he comes from and how well bred he is.
Not only is Hammy a well bred and stunning poodle, but he is also healthy, has passed all his health clearances (see attached) and he has the most amazing temperament.
He is not your typical Toy Poodle which is usually described as hyper and yappy. Hammy is the opposite. He is quiet, sweet, affectionate, cuddly, calm and loves to snuggle up in our laps for lots of love.
Hammy has the sweetest personality you will ever meet. He is amazing with all the other kennel dogs and adores all people. He has a sensitive side and will always submit to all the other dogs. He doesn’t like any sort of confrontation. He will gently give up his toys to both dogs and humans and is always the last dog to eat in his group. He is very patient. He loves to give kisses both to humans and all his dog friends. He is the type of dog that wants to be everyone’s friend. He loves belly rubs and loves to go for off leash walks. He does play around with the other dogs but would much prefer to snuggle with his humans. He doesn’t love the snow or to get his feet dirty. He loves to stay clean; he loves his baths and soaks up every ounce of attention from the groomer during his 4-week trims! Cuddle time and groom time are his favorite.
In general, Hammy has an extremely sweet personality. He has a very balanced temperament. He is everything I love to see in my breeding dogs. I’m excited to share his personality traits with owners of his pups!
61lbs. – 26″tall
Jimmy Choo is a very tall and regal standard poodle. He would be known to those in the poodle community as a Royal poodle because he is greater than 25″ tall at the wither. He has legs for days! He is one of the tallest poodles at SwissRidge. When bred to a Bernese he produces very large Bernedoodles. His puppies usually have his height and the Bernese thickness, this makes for a very large dogs and most of the time larger than both parents.
Jimmy was bred in the US and was imported into Canada at 8 weeks of age.
He has grown into a magnificent and stunning dog and I couldn’t be happier with this boy!
Jimmy has a typical poodle personality. Jimmy is a very playful, loving poodle with a heart of gold. He loves to cuddle, loves to bounce, loves to play with toys and his friends! He is full of life, happy and has energy when we go on our trail walks but he is not a hyper dog. During the day he lay’s around the kennel and relaxes. One thing I love about him that is different then a lot of poodles, is poodles are typically more vocal, Jimmy rarely barks. He is a quiet dog by nature. This part of his personality and his gentle nature reminds me of a Bernese, everything else about him is all poodle.
Jimmy loves his friends. We don’t allow our girl and boy dogs to mix so there are no accidental breeding’s. All his friends are intact males and he gets along with every single one from the toy poodle Sting, to his partner in Crime Henry. He loves all the boy equally. If I had to pick his beasties in the kennel they would be Henry, followed by Jackson and Gimli. They have their little playgroup and their personalities mesh very well!
Jimmy absolutely loves to go on off-leash pack walks with the boys. His favourite thing to do on our walks is to stretch his long legs by running as fast has he can through the fields as he leaps over the grass!
This boy literally turns heads as he passes people with his model like legs, bubbly personality and forward moving prance. He has a happy, sweet and go lucky personality.
I would say the best words to describe him are happy, sweet and regal. A real head turner!
12 lbs. – 10″ tall
I call Milo my baby Sting. He looks and acts so much like him just a younger version. Milo is a fun, energetic, happy boy who has a vest for life.
I purchased Milo with this brother Otis and they have been inseparable since the day they where born. They do everything together and have a very strong bond. They keep themselves entertained for hours chasing a ball or each other, rolling and wrestling with brotherly love. They are a riot to watch play.
Milo loves everyone he meets. His tail is constantly wagging and he has a very inviting presence to his personality. Anyone that meets him can’t help but be drawn to his charm and good looks. He is very friendly and gets along with all the other dogs, even though he is a intact male.
I’m excited to announce he has passed all his health clearances and has started his career as a professional stud at SwissRidge! He has sired some beautiful litters so far. I’m thrilled with his puppies. They are making families around the world very happy!
10 lbs. – 9″ tall
Otis is a gentle, loving, sweet soul. I received him and his brother Milo at 12 weeks of age. They have been together since birth and are inseparable. Anywhere one goes the other is close behind. It is adorable to watch their bond and see how much they love each other.
Otis is the smaller of the two. He is also the more reserved and gentle one. He looks up to his bigger brother, learns from him, mimics him and follows his every move. Otis is the one who loves to cuddle and be held. He will cuddle in your arms and gaze into your eye for however long you will hold him. We call him the snuggle bug. He is just the right size to take almost anywhere. He has a very gentle, calm, soft and submissive personality. His personality is very unique as most mini poodles are much more outgoing. I love everything about this boy from his structure to his gentle personality. I can’t wait to see what type of puppies he produces!
Sting 9 lbs. – 12″ tall
Sting is a toy poodle who we imported from Ukraine. His lineage is filled with world-class champions! His lines have been tested many generations back, and he has a solid background in terms of looks, temperament, and health. He is outgoing and very social.
You know when you’ve met Sting when you’re greeted with enthusiasm, excitement, and lots and lots of kisses! He practically jumps out of his skin to say hello! He is a total heartthrob and you can’t help but return the affection to him. He loves sitting on my lap and snuggling while at the same time showering me with hundreds of kisses. He’s bouncy and playful and loves hanging out with his best friends – Crumpet, Loki, and Levi. Yes…that’s four intact males getting along like one big happy family!
Sting loves to be surrounded by people, but also enjoys romping with the other dogs in the kennel. He gets along so well with everyone – big, small, old, young…he loves them all! Sting has been my main stud for mini goldendoodles for almost a decade. Just ask the families that have two or even three of his pups how amazing they are! Sting’s puppies are unbelievably cute, affectionate, and smart, and are simply amazing family dogs.
Hershey 38 lbs. – 19.5″ tall
Hershey is a handsome small standard poodle. I have always had a difficult time finding poodles from breeders that I would want to add into my breeding program. I seek puppies whose parents have been health-tested for generations, who are well tempered, and who possess the look and structure that are important to better my breeding program. Meeting all of these criteria has been a difficult task. Whenever I thought I found the perfect addition, there was usually a reason I couldn’t add them – either the puppy didn’t pass my strict health testing, their temperament wasn’t just right, or they didn’t grow up to be what I expected. Some may say I’m a bit too selective when adding dogs to my program. I raise a lot of dogs, but only a few actually make the cut.
I finally decided to breed a litter of poodles for myself, keep and raise the puppies, and choose the top dogs out of that litter to breed. I bred two of my most prized poodles – who have everything I look for and love about the poodle breed. It was a great success. I hand-picked some of those pups to raise, one of whom is Hershey.
Hershey is a very handsome red and white poodle. He has a fun personality and is happy to please the people he is around. Hershey’s favorite thing to do is play outside in the field with his sister Annie and his brother Grommet. Hershey loves toys so much that he wants to be the first one out in the field so that he can have first pick, and will then run in circles as fast as he can. He could play fetch for as long as you can throw the ball or Frisbee for him and in fact, during his training sessions, toys are more rewarding to him than treats are!
Hershey loves to go for walks along the beautiful SwissRidge trails. A trail walk with Hershey wouldn’t be complete without spending time sitting in the shade and him getting a nice massage and belly rub. You always know when he’s enjoying his massage because as soon as you stop, he inches closer and closer until he’s sitting in your lap! He has a very social personality and gets along well with any dog or human he meets.
Grommet 41.5 lbs. – 23″ tall
Grommet is a handsome small standard poodle.
I have always had a difficult time finding poodles from breeders that I would want to add into my breeding program. I seek puppies whose parents have been health-tested for generations, who are well tempered, and who possess the look and structure that are important to better my breeding program.

I bred two of my most prized poodles – who have everything I look for and love about the poodle breed. It was a great success. I hand-picked some of those pups to raise, one of whom is Grommet.
Grommet is the biggest poodle of all his littermates, which suits his big personality well. He is bursting with kindness, a good sense of humour, and good looks. As a tri phantom, he is envied by many. Grommet gets along with everyone, but enjoys the company of his brother Hershey the most. These boys love to wrestle, always trying to outdo each other in strength with lengthy games of tug of war. When spending time with Grommet one on one, you get to see his softer side where he anticipates your every move. He carries out commands exceptionally well, and he listens very well under distraction. He never backs down from a challenge and is always keen to seek out the next adventure, whether it’s hiking, swimming, or being the first to get the ball. His fun and playful personality is one I want to see in every one of my doodles. I can’t wait to share his amazing personality with dog lovers everywhere!
